This place is almost a museum of sorts. Run by National Park Rangers, the center educates visitors on how to get the most out of Alaska’s outdoors experiences while maintaining the environment. To this end they provide every resource imaginable - cultural and historical exhibits, trip planning assistance, and advice on camping safety. The center also provides some of the passes necessary to enjoy Alaska. If they can’t provide the passes, they will direct you to the agencies that can. All things considered, this is a really convenient center. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Anchorage itinerary 3 days.

This place is awesome. You can watch free cool movies about Alaska and join the Junior Ranger Program.
Let me start by saying this is a federal building, of course you will be searched, but the search is significantly easier than TSA. Divest your pockets and don't be a tool, and its painless! Inside, there are great exhibits about national parks, you can get your park passport stamped, get info about which parks to visit, and watch short films (that are gorgeous btw) In their quiet theatre. It's worth the trip if you have a little time in anchorage
Great way to spend some time in Anchorage. Exhibits from all areas of the state. They have a nice theater where they play some great movies on the earthquake, railroad history, mining history, animals of Denali, and my favorite: the bears of the Katmai peninsula. Best of all, it's FREE! Since it's in the federal building you do have to go through a metal detector.
Don't bother: They basically strip search you to get in because it's a Fed bldg and they have a 70's era metal detector.
Informative exhibition, friendly staff share tourist information and a nice theater.
